Helping children safely take charge of their emotions? Now that’s a gift that will last a lifetime.
With a simple press-to-operate function, a timed light sequence shines from Brave and Able's tummies to help children follow a slower breathing pace, to calm their nervous system and slow their feelings of overwhelm. The light guide has an automatic five-minute shut-off function.
Made of beautifully soft fabrics in a variety of shapes and textures, these trusted companions have many sensory elements for kids to hold to help them regain focus while they practise slowing their breathing and work through their big feelings. They are also great snugglers and suitable for bedtimes.
CALM BREATHING SKILLS
Learn slow, deep breathing skills without the need for an app or a smartphone. Guided light teaches kids how to calmly take control of their breathing and regain focus. With a clearer mind you can more easily work through your big feelings and challenges. These skills can be carried within them for a lifetime, into the tricky teenage years and beyond!
Encourage regular quiet play, brain breaks and time in. Build mindful breathing time into morning or evening routines, or while kids are calm, so that these skills can be recalled in tricky situations when they need them most. Brave and Able are a tangible tool for parents and caregivers to engage children in conversations about big, confusing feelings, and provide a demonstration for how to work through them.
TAKE US ANYWHERE
Fully portable and with no need for wifi, children can practise with their Breathing Buddies wherever their adventures take them, requiring only 2 x AAA batteries for operation (not included).
BACKED BY SCIENCE
Did you know that calm breathing is a key tool to help ground your child, help performance, help anxiety, help connection and help resilience? Scientific studies have shown that slow, deep breathing has the ability to reduce anxiety, increase confidence and memory, and even grow new brain cells!

We’re going to have a look at some of the key differences.
